THE ASS IN THE LIONíS SKIN
THE Ass once dressed himself in the Lionís skin and went about frightening
all the little beasts. Now he happened on the Fox, and tried to frighten
him too; but the Fox chanced to hear him speak, and said: "Well, to be
sure, I should have been frightened too, if I hadnít heard you bray, and
seen your ears sticking out."
So there are some men who make themselves appear very fine outwardly, but
are betrayed as soon as they begin to talk.
